Update By: Illidanz

A full English translation of the 2008 NDS game Spice and Wolf: My Year with Holo (based on the hit light novel/anime series of the same name) has been released!

The first of two Japan-exclusive games for the console, My Year with Holo follows the adventures of the player, an uncanny look-alike of series’ protagonist Kraft Lawrence, on his travels with harvest deity-cum-giant wolf Holo, as they travel around seeking clues to the whereabouts of Holo's long lost hometown.

Part business simulator, part dating game, it features an interesting mix of trading and romance mechanics alongside a non-linear story with 12 possible endings. Take the reins to explore the charms of a pseudo-Medieval world, with Wisewolf Holo as your travel guide!

I'm not familiar with the anime(only by name), but I love management games so I'll certainly be trying it.

"1st NDS game" is/are other game(s) of the series also management game(s)?

Thank you for translating another anime game, and in such short time!

Thank you everyone for your kind comments! We hope you enjoy  ;D

@kaiisen: Yes, the second game in the series, Umi o Wataru Kaze (The Wind that Spans the Sea), develops and improves on the gameplay of the first game, introducing new features such as deadlines for trading deals and a grid-based inventory system. They're not directly linked so you can play the second game before the first etc, but for this game we were able to use work from previous translation teams, (with their permission, of course!), which is part of the reason we were able to get this out so quickly! It felt very humbling to be able to finally be able to bring everyone's hard work into a playable patch.

There are also two (officially translated) VR games for the series which came out recently, but they're somewhat more 'VR animations' than games.
